Willamette Writers on the River December 2016 Open Mike

 

Read your work aloud at our quarterly reading

An open-mic event where writers of all kinds have the opportunity to engage in one of the most important practices of the writing life — reading their work in front of others. It’s a great opportunity to read your own work in front of a receptive audience. Anyone can participate, but you have to sign up. These events fill up quickly!

Monday, December 19, 2016  6:30–8:30 PM
First Presbyterian Church, Dennis Hall, Corvallis, Oregon
(use 9th St. Parking Lot Entrance)
